Huntingdonshire History Festival

Welcome to the Huntingdonshire History Festival site.

The Huntingdonshire History Festival is a month long programme of events that takes place each July, including talks, tours, family activities, exhibitions, historical re-enactments and concerts that celebrate the story of Huntingdonshire. In 2019 (our last festival) we held over 150 events for over 10,000 visitors. Events take place in Huntingdon, Godmanchester, St Neots, Ramsey and St Ives, and are mostly free of charge thanks to generous support from a number of funders, including the A14 Fund, the Huntingdon Freemen’s Trust and the Heritage Lottery Fund.

The organising committee and trustees of the Huntingdonshire History Festival are excited to announce that the Festival will be back July 2022!

The 2022 festival will be launching with a large scale Civil War reenactment on Castle Hill Huntingdon over the 2nd-3rd July reliving the events of August 1645 when King Charles I attacked the garrison of Huntingdon.

In the meantime you can enjoy our blogs on all aspects of local history and keep your eyes peeled for updates shared via our social media channels.
